Marine Conservation

Bernard Reef Restoration Four Seasons Mauritius

Our Passion

A leading resource in marine education, experience, opportunities, and consultancy, WiseOceans was established back in 2011 with one goal in mind: to engage, educate and inspire people everywhere to love our oceans, and the life within them.

The vision we work towards is a world where marine conservation is in action, through an engaged, educated, and inspired global community, leading to healthy, thriving marine environments. As such, we deliver conservation programmes with education and engagement at their core. Marrying sound scientific practice with innovative project design, we deliver programmes with local benefits, and global reach. Through our bespoke programmes, and global marine education delivered by WiseOceans Academy, we aim to improve the health of tropical coastal ecosystems on a local scale and increase the awareness of marine conservation on a global scale.

Reef Restoration Community

Community Outreach Projects

We believe in an open, positive, sharing conservation community. All projects undertaken follow our core principles of collaboration, transparency, and open communication, with both stakeholders and the local community

Marine Scholarship Programme

Sustainable Snorkelling Programme

Reef Restoration

We create effective, engaging, and educational reef restoration projects of innovative design, which are bespoke to the local environmental and stakeholder needs. Based on sound scientific foundations, our projects assist the natural recovery of a reef and help to maintain coral diversity and natural resilience.

We have numerous projects where we aim to restore degraded areas of reef using the coral gardening technique and to inspire a sense of stewardship in local and international communities by connecting people to coral, and the threats that our reefs face.

Reef Restoration Projects


Located at Four Seasons Resort Seychelles, this project collaborates with the Seychelles Ministry of Agriculture, Climate Change and Environment and aims to restore 10,000 sqm of degraded limestone reef in Petite Anse. You can sponsor a sqm area of coral reef in the Petite Anse Bay, Mahé, which will help to bring the reef back to its former diverse beauty!


Located at Four Seasons Resort Mauritius at Anahita and in collaboration with the Mauritian Government, our joint aims to restore 10,000 sqm of degraded reef within the lagoon, based on-site, on the east coast of Mauritius. By sponsoring either a 1, 2 or 4 sqm area of reef, you will help the protection of vital coral reefs and ensure their longevity.

French Polynesia

In collaboration with Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora, we are restoring and enhancing 5,000 sqm of internal coral lagoon, using the coral gardening technique and innovative new reef structures to increase biodiversity and engagement. Through your sponsorship, you are participating in reef restoration, helping to keep our oceans, and the inhabitants that call them home, healthy.
